I don't really see a "best" combination of styles to study, it really depends on what you want to do with your MMA. In my case, if I had to only pick 2 styles it would be BJJ and Judo, just because they feed off of each other so well.

My top 3 that are best used together are: BJJ, Judo and Shorinji Kempo.

Watch Chuck Liddell, he's proof that it works. His striking is almost exclusively Kempo, packed with a few of his own freestyle innovations. My freinds and I have also proved that the only way that a 5'7" guy can KO a 6'4" guy is with Shorinji Kempo. It doesn't get the most recognition, but it's the second best striking system used in MMA (muay thai is obviously the best) and since it combines striking and grappling it's my striking system of choice.

I think it was said before it really matters on the fighter and how he emplys what he learns, my self for instance I have studied so many styles over the years I can not seperate them, they are truly mixed I do what works in the given situation. Picking one or two styles that one combined are superior to others is really an exercise in futility.

I think Don is probably right, but I still think its a good attempt for beginners to understand. It's really important to study a striking style and a grappling style.

i fi had to pick two it would be bjj and muay thai.
bjj for ground and mouy thai for all striking aspects but thirdly wrestling for takedowns

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.

is a pretty bold claim, but I must admit i don't know a thing about the style, where can i find good info?

I concur. If i had to pick 2. Muy Thai and BJJ.

We all know that the great fighters have a bigger arsenal than that though.

I'm 5'7" and one of the guys on the football team, the only one to pick a fight with me, is 6'4". Just standard Shorinji Kempo hiptwist overhand shot a-la Chuck. It may be a little bold to say that it's the "only way" but it is certainly one of the most efficient.

Plus the fact that the system integrates the ground game makes it so much more valuable than as just a striking system.
